  • Patent number: 10694776
    Abstract: This invention discloses a kind of microburst-microcapsule designed for cigarettes and a smoking article with such microburst-microcapsules. Wherein the microburst-microcapsule is composed of a microcapsule wall and an aerosol generation material encapsulated by the microcapsule wall. The microburst-microcapsule can be filled in cigarette. When the cigarette lights, the high temperature generated from its combustion zone will vaporize the nearest aerosol generation materials packaged in the aforesaid microburst-microcapsule. The vapor pressure will cause the microcapsule wall burst. As a result, the aerosol from the aforesaid aerosol generation materials will vapor out of the microcapsule wall. Tobacco-free carbonaceous fuels or solid carbonaceous from high temperature vacuum destructive distillation of tobacco filament can be used as combustion materials for aforesaid cigarettes.

  • Publication number: 20190223496
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a kind, of gas combustion heating smoking article with puff mouth piece. The gas heating smoking article includes a smoking article housing, a combustion device, a plurality of cigarette consumable items or a plurality of aerosol generation consumable items. The combustion device uses propane or butane premixed with air before combustion, heat generated from the combustion is used to bake the cigarette consumable items or aerosol generation consumable items. The present invention provides a low temperature smoking article using gas as energy, which generates quite similar taste of normal cigarette, to people who have difficulty to quite smoke. Because there is no cigarette burning, this smoking article can reduce many harmful products compared to the traditional cigarette due to its tobacco burning and heat degradation, like tar, carbon monoxide, ash, etc.
